PhpStorm 8.0.0 Web Help

PhpStorm enables tight interaction with the native file managers (Explorer on Windows, or Finder on Mac), and allows you exchange files and directories via the system clipboard, using numerous techniques:

  • Cut, copy and paste files and directories from the Project tool window of PhpStorm to a directory in the file manager, and vice versa, using menu commands and keyboard shortcuts:
